No news is...not good

Sorry I've been MIA for the past week! Right now I'm up at the hospital with Ralph. I brought him to the ER on Thursday night because I couldn't keep his O2 levels up. He was running about 83 at 2 liters.

We spent Thanksgiving Day in Tulsa with my family. Ralph spent the day sleeping on the floor. That is quite uncharacteristic. He has been on antibiotics and breathing treatments since last Sunday. I would not have taken him on a trip if I thought he was not getting better.

We spent last night and all day today in the PICU. Ralph needed 5 liters of oxygen to keep his sat levels up. He has steadily improved all day and has weaned down to 1 liter. I'm guessing we will go home tomorrow. Normally our trips to the PICU are disastrous. This time is a nice change. Thank God.

Well...I guess it wouldn't be a holiday without a hospital visit.
